Arts and Crafts styling puts a fitting face on this hillside home. As it snuggles up to the terrain, the homes natural wood and stone effortlessly blend in with natures elements. Like an asymmetrical tower of blocks, the exterior form even mimics the irregular shape and random terrain of a bluff, effecting a harmonious link to the landscape.
The interior is divided among three levels. The main floor houses the living spaces and a guest suite. The foyer and dining room join forces at the front of the home and display both warmth and elegance. The dining room is accompanied by a built-in hutch and a butlers pantry. Beyond is the great-room, which features a fireplace, built-ins, and French doors that open to a pergola-covered patio. A long, lean island defines the traffic patterns of the kitchen. The cooking enthusiast will relish the six-burner stove and double ovens. A banquette in the breakfast nook saves on floor space and provides for more seating than freestanding furniture. An open-air porch with a fireplace, and a carport with a driveway that slopes to the front, are at the back of the home.
Where privacy and peace are desired, the home provides an office and a guest suite, accessed from a hallway off the great-room. The office has a pair of closets for storing reference materials and files. The guest suite includes a private bath, a walk-in closet, and French doors that lead to a front deck.
The upper level contains two secondary bedrooms that share a bath, and the master suite. A large shower, private deck, dual lavs, a spa tub, and a large dressing closet with bays for two adorn the suite. Also conveniently located on the same level are the laundry room, which is steps from bedroom hampers, and a study, which gives older children a quiet place to work on the computer or do homework.
The lower level contains the three-car garage and an unfinished storage room.
